Skryne 1-15 Moylagh 0-04
LGFA Junior A Football Championship. Group B – Round 3.
Skryne secured a semi-final place in the Kepak Junior A Junior Championship with an emphatic victory over Moylagh on Saturday night. Playing against a strong breeze in the first half they held Moylagh scoreless until half time with a score line of 8 points to nil. Moylagh did have their chances in this opening period including a missed penalty.
The second half saw conditions improve and playing with the aid of the breeze Skryne opened the scoring early and controlled the game despite Moylagh coming back with a number of scores. The game was put to bed in the last quarter by a Roisin McManus goal after a patient build-up and an excellent cross-field pass by Ciara Smyth. This was a great overall team performance from the ladies.
Having topped the group Skryne now advance to a home semi-final against neighbours Walterstown in Fr. McManus Park on Wednesday 2nd September at 7pm.
